We went on this trip last week end, it was a week end break. Time in Chester on the Sat, night in a hotel and then to Liverpool to pick the ferry up. Should have been a six hour cruise but one of the swing bridges broke down so that added half hour to the trip. It was a lovely sunny start, we did have a short shower on the afternoon, would not be a good trip if the weather was bad. The guide was very good she told us lots about everything, we saw a kingfisher and lots of Herons so that was good and when we got nearer to Salford that was realy good. If you do go on this trip take food with you, they knew how many people had booked on the trip and they still ran out of food in less than three hours so that was not good, ferry is fine and you do get good views but six hours was a long time.
